Kick-off: 1230, 13/08/2022

Stadium: Villa Park

TV: BT Sport

Aston Villa and Everton both tasted defeat in the opening round of Premier League fixtures but we’re hoping the midlands outfit can recover better.

Villa did the double over the Toffees last term and are unbeaten in six head-to-head meetings since coming back up, posting four wins.

Punters can get 1.85 for a home victory here and that is our first Aston Villa vs Everton prediction.

Aston Villa Odds

Villa conceded early and late in a 2-0 loss at Bournemouth, with both goals coming from aerial crosses into the box.

In between, Steven Gerrard’s side showed some encouraging signs, enjoying 66 per cent of possession and having 15 shots, compared to seven for the Cherries.

However, Gerrard admitted: “Across the 90 minutes, we haven’t had enough quality in the final third.

“It’s extremely disappointing, certainly not the result we came here for, but I don’t think we can have any complaints in terms of the outcome of the game.

“The good thing is, it’s glaringly obvious where we went wrong. We’ve had enough quality players on the pitch but our last pass, our last cross, our last inventive spark was off.”

Danny Ings and Jacob Ramsey tested Bournemouth keeper Mark Travers, while Villa debutant Boubacar Kamara was only narrowly off target from distance.

Playmaker Philippe Coutinho was a peripheral figure for most of the afternoon but Gerrard can tweak his starting line-up here.

Ollie Watkins, Emiliano Buendia and Douglas Luiz are obvious candidates to come in, having done well against Everton before.

Looking at the 5.25 for the hosts to oblige by exactly two goals.

Last Villa line-up: Martinez, Cash, Diego Carlos, Konsa, Digne, McGinn, Coutinho, Ramsey, Kamara, Ings, Bailey.

Tyrone Mings is available for Villa after a scan on an adductor muscle showed no serious damage, but Kortney Hause remains out with the injury that he picked up at the tail end of last season.

Everton Odds

Everton were far from disgraced when going down 1-0 to Chelsea at Goodison Park, only succumbing to a Jorginho penalty.

At the other end, James Tarkowski tested Edouard Mendy with a powerful header and Demarai Gray’s pace troubled Thiago Silva on one breakaway.

However, with Richarlison sold to Tottenham and Dominic Calvert-Lewin out injured, a shortage of attacking quality was there for all to see.

The Toffees also now have issues at the back, with Ben Godfrey ruled out for two to three months and Yerry Mina limping off against the Blues.

Lille midfielder Amadou Onana will be a nice recruit after a fee of £33million was agreed.

“He is a fantastically-talented young player with great attributes,” said Frank Lampard. “We have followed him for a long time.

“I think he is going be a really good player. He is a really good all-round midfield player but he is a young player, so we have to be patient with him.”

The Toffees could do with additional help up front right now and 3.0 for them to lose to nil again completes our Aston Villa vs Everton betting tips.

That wager would have paid out in both of last season’s encounters and the Merseysiders have only scored twice in the past six head-to-head meetings.

Last Everton line-up: Pickford, Tarkowski, Patterson, Mina, Mykolenko, Godfrey, McNeil, Doucoure, Gordon, Gray, Iwobi.

Everton’s other new signing Conor Coady is expected to be included in Lampard’s squad after joining on a season-long loan from Wolves.
